Rolling mill finishing equipment is a class of industrial machinery used to produce high-quality rolled products. It comprises several types of rolling machines, which are usually mounted on rails. The purpose of the finishing machines is to produce parts with a smooth surface and accurate dimensions. The main types of rolling mill finishing equipment include:
-Friction rollers: These are used to apply a uniform pressure to the finished product, which helps to eliminate any irregularities or flaws on the surface.
-Paint rollers: These are also known as greasers, and are typically used to apply a protective coating or finish to the product.
-Sheet rolls: These are used to create large sheets of fabric or paper, which can then be cut into desired shapes or sizes.
Rolling mill finishing equipment can be very dangerous if not used properly. Injuries caused by rolling mill finishing equipment can include compound tears, skin lacerations, and finger injuries.
For example two men were injured in a rolling mill accident on December 4, 2014. The first man was crushed when a 4-ton press fell on him. The second man was injured when the electric motor in his bolting press seized up and caused the machine to fall on him.Both of these men suffered life-threatening injuries, and had to have extensive surgery.
